hmmmm, did not think that through…..more than half the class just finished gym class…..
oh well. The project was simple enough. I had them do a crayon rubbing of the bottom of their shoe, cut it out and then glue it on another sheet of paper. From there, it could be anything….and I was really impressed with what they came up with. The girl who always draws horses, turned her shoe rubbing into a very nice horse…
and the girl who turns every project into a reason to draw a princess…completely transformed her shoe print into well, just look, it is kind of amazing for a ten year old.
I posted more pics on the …art rocks tab, proving this project was worth a slightly odorous classroom. : )
Those who finished early did some life drawing. I suggested they made “trophy” sketches of their friends…. (the princess-artist added a trophy full of roses as I was talking…not quite what I meant, but, if anything, that girl is consistent)
Two boys really got into it – check it out…. (and I should point out, that is a duct tape tie he is wearing, so cute)
